Real World Immigration and Other Legal Enforcement Issues at HCH Health Centers

Thursday, May 17, 2018: 1:00 PM-2:30 PM
Greenway AJ (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
In light of recent policy and enforcement activities involving immigrants, this discussion will provide background on current immigration policies and practices. Staff from the National Immigration Law Center will share their expertise on providers’ rights and responsibilities with regard to law enforcement, privacy and confidentiality of patients’ identifying information (as well as personal health information), information related to “sensitive locations,” and how front desk and other health center staff should respond to immigration authorities onsite.  Presentation includes video presentation of a dramatic real life situation involving a clinician, real stories from clinicians, and a facilitated discussion.
